Hi tim,
I've just tried your suggestion....the pl2303 is no longer showing in device tree (it hasn't since I removed the tricklestar) and the Aquos is still showing as disabled & not registered , tho the system did run thro numerous detection scripts

fresh install
remove tricklestar entry from template 1754
reload router

pl2303 no longer auto detected,but same 2 usbport options available in Aquos template (1856)
tried both options(tho dmesg reports 2303 as being on ttyUSB1)reloading router on each attempt
tried both options rebooting coreon each attempt
RESULT on every occaision  - the aquos template shows the device as registered but disabled

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Hi Tim
many thanks for responding.

I only found the vendorId referenced in EDIT  #1754..zwave /triclestar--removed.....removedthe pl2303 as a device and physically ,reloaded then rebooted (reload only didn't work).

Once back into lmce, I re-inserted the pl2303 which the system detected  (repeatedly,untill)  I assigned the converter as controlled by the core, in web admin

Web admin reports two usb ports in the drop down menu for com port, neither of which bear any resemblance to bus/device id reported in lsusb...........How do I determine which is the correct port?  I did try both,expecting the system to pick up the tv, which it didn't.

The same two ports are later reported in the avwizard,which is triggered by me selecting the Aquos template,  again which port should be used?

also...if I update/upgrade  or update sqlcvs is the problem going to recur ?

sorry for all the minor editing of the Aquos template this has always been an automagic
part of the setup

many thanks

Hi all,
 I've just installed snapshot 23759 on an Asus AT3n7A-1 , with sound and video thru HDMI to a Sharp Aquos, with a 2302 (prolific) usb/232 converter for control.

On previous installations the 2302 has worked transparently and the tv has been PNP.

Now, the system is picking up the 2303 dongle and asking if I want to use it (yes) but no longer auto detects the tv

if I manually add the tv in web admin the system either freezes when reloading the router or persistently
shows the tv as disabled in web admin.

Has anyone experienced anything similar,? and /or can anyone  point me in the right direction,

have just finished installing and all appears ok

I edited sources.list after kubuntu install
        install a lot slower than usual, fetching packages from net ?
      normal a/v wizard

      apt-get update/upgrade completed (warns about duplicate entries and 1 .archive
             -but I probably     missed that on first edit)

w32codecs libdvdcss2 installed

early days, but looks promising

BIG thanks devs,

Well I certainly qualify as a "dummy" user...

hence next question

installing to a clean drive > (assumably)install kubuntu from last s/shot >change sources list  (y/n?)
then what ?

all the best


EDIT           the response was fairly snappy too!!

I had a sneaking suspicion (read absolute certainty) that it would be beyond my fat fingers/spongiform brain and low grade eyesight,   :(
 hey ho, good excuse to buy  an nvidia board, any current recommendations ?

Hi all,
        I'm running snapshot 23388, ui1, with an Intel G33 onboard video chip.

Re-running A-V  wizard to move into UI2-med  results in

 "Orbiter failed to open OpenGL" ........................, no matter what accelleration option I use  in web-admin.

The wiki states that stock drivers should run with UI2 med with no prob (since0704) as do various posts.

Thinking that updating the driver would solve the issue I tried following            which failed due to removal of 0810 packages from medibuntu/launchpad.

Could anyone give  a fix /pointers please,

thanks in advance,

Hi guys,
            once again, apologies for "stupid" question , but how do I view a device template without actually installing it ?
